A Florida man has been charged with felony criminal mischief after causing power outages in multiple areas of one Florida county.
According to Holmes County Sheriff’s Office, Colton Madden was arrested after it was determined he had traveled to multiple locations across eastern Holmes County and caused damage to four West Florida Electric Cooperative (WFEC) transformers totaling more than $20,000.
Deputies say many WFEC customers in different parts of the county lost power as a result.
WFEC officials notified deputies about the incident, and with the help of those officials and a witness in the area, Madden was developed as a suspect and later admitted to investigators that he was responsible for the damage.
Madden is currently in custody at the Holmes County Jail, where he is charged with felony criminal mischief.
